Sports Day 2013!

21st of June 2013, what a marvellous Sports day we had!
The rain threatened, the clouds rolled in, but the rain stayed away, just for us!
It started with a procession of 20 individual team banners all displayed on the playground that each team had made previously in the week.
Below is a photo of each amazing participating team!

The children, throughout the course of the morning, enjoyed many group games from basketball to egg and spoon, netball to long jump plus many, many more!

Highest scores and team points were added up as the children joined in all the exciting activities!

Here are a few shots of the children in action!

However there can only be one winner and out of all the 20 teams that took part… one of them managed to gain slightly more points than any of the other teams…

It wasn’t….Brewin’s Bears who came in at an amazing 3rd place… It wasn’t Williams Winners who impressed everyone with their secured 2nd place…

The title, this year, went to the amazing GROOVY GREENWOODS!!!! a massive well done to this team for their fantastic win!!


After all this excitement, the children all settled down to  celebrate the sporting awards and achievements being presented by Mrs Fearnley and Miss Tyzack…

Overall the children (and staff!) had such a fun-filled morning that will stay in their memories for a long time.

Working together as a team and promoting good sportsmanship is what school sports days should be about, and that is exactly what the children had the chance to experience today! 

A huge thank you to all the parents that came to support your child’s team I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

Hip hip hooray for all the amazing children of Herringthorpe Juniors!
